Dear colleagues and friends,

The European Gastric Cancer Congress (EGCC) will be held the 7th and 8th of June 2018 in Leiden, The Netherlands.

The European Gastric Cancer Association (EGCA) was officially founded during the board meeting of the International Gastric Cancer Association (IGCA) in Beijing
2017 of the IGCA. Its precursor, the European Union Network of Excellence, organised her meetings since 2006 biannually in Edinburgh, Rome, Madrid,
Cologne, Liverpool and Lisbon.

We would be very happy to welcome you in 2018 in Leiden. We have prepared a multidisciplinary program that covers all the aspects of the management of gastric
cancer. A faculty of international speakers will address topics like diagnostic modalities, minimal invasive surgery, multimodality treatment, pathology, targeted
& immune therapy and quality of care. Furthermore the latest results of some large trials and the EURECCA project will be presented. Abstracts will be accepted for
poster presentations.

The city of Leiden can be reached easily: only 20 min from Amsterdam Schiphol Airport. The congress venue and hotels are on walking distance from the Leiden
railway station. Beside for the scientific EGCC program, visiting Leiden is strongly recommended for her rich history, amazing canals, exciting museums and a great atmosphere.

On behalf of the organising committee I look forward meeting you all in June in The Netherlands,

Henk Hartgrink, PhD, MD
Congress President
